Waves

“Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Ever feel like Peter? I did. All last week. It’s funny how little distractions can really take your eyes off the One leading. 

Little distractions, like: 

Wedding problems, eating habits, job frustrations, believing lies… just to name a few. 

I felt like Peter last week, sinking, as the waves of my life buffeted against me. (Ever feel that way?) I forgot to just keep my eyes focused, remembering that I’ve never been let down before. 

Faith. That’s all it is. Believing that I won’t sink even though it feels that way–or even if I feel like I want to! 

Jesus likes faith. It pleases Him.

How Bad Do You Want It?

How bad do you want it?

This phrase has marked my journey for the last four years. I now realize it is the question that holds most people back from the things they want the most.

I’ve often heard people say things like:

“I want to  lose this extra weight.”

“I want to get that promotion at work.”

“I want to go back and finish school.”

“I want to find my soul mate.”

“I want to fulfill my dream.”

I hear these phrases often, but just as often, nothing happens. Here’s the question I want to ask when I hear those phrases.

How bad do you want it?

Can you see it? Can you feel it? Does the lack of progress make you angry? Can you taste it? Can you hear it? Do you want it? Do you WANT it?

How bad do you want it? The answer to this question will take you to your next step. So…

…How bad do you want it?
